I have 2 native Melaleuca Armillaris plants that are getting attacked by a pest

Hi
It appears that something is eating all the bottom leaves and starting to extend towards the top of the tree and leaving these strange crumbley cocoon type things to my native Melaleuca Armillaris plants. Please help as I think this pest will eventually kill my plants.
Thanks
Renee

Answer: Hi Renee,
Trees in the tea tree family can suffer a lot from webbing caterpillars that sounds like what you have on your melaleuca plants. We have a product called Success Ultra that would treat this pest http://anpsa.org.au/APOL2009/jul09-1.html
